San Francisco Mayor Signs Green Building Legislation into Law at Adobe

On Friday, February 18, 2011, San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee signed into effect a new law that aims to improve energy efficiency in existing buildings, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and lower energy costs. Mayor Lee chose Adobe’s 601 Townsend building in San Francisco as the backdrop for this news because of Adobe’s proven track record in sustainability. 601 Townsend is the oldest LEED-certified platinum green building in the world. Today, Adobe’s LEED certifications total 10—with 9 of these being platinum. We are extremely honored and proud to have hosted Mayor Lee for this momentous event.

Photoshop Turns 20!

You can’t escape Photoshop…it’s everywhere you go – billboard signs, magazine covers, major motion pictures, even the logo on the coffee cup you drink out of every morning have all likely been touched by Photoshop. The software that redefined creativity in the digital age, turns 20 on February 19. Celebrations are happening all around the world.

In honor of the 20th anniversary, Adobe Germany will host a special 20-hour online marathon, featuring over 15 local Photoshop “gurus” demonstrating their favorite tips and tricks live for Photoshop fans. In India and France, digital imaging contests will be held to showcase the work of Photoshop users.

The Photoshop community is also sharing their favorite stories online, with the product and its over 400,000 fan-strong Facebook page, the hub for a worldwide look at the product’s impact. A new “Celebrate” tab directs users to a 20th anniversary logo, which many have already personalized with Photoshop and used as a replacement for their profile image.
